Rituals are important to maintain a positive connection. A ritual can be anything that makes you and your partner regularly turn towards each other, emotionally, physically or spiritually.
Rituals of connection form the pillars of this culture, making the bond stronger by reinforcing it.
Strong and meaningful rituals, whether it is praying together, or even coining nicknames, can stitch couples together and build strong relationships.
Reading old diaries and letters, or looking at old pictures is a great way to bond at home, while revisiting old memories when life wasn’t too complicated. Since there are kids present in most homes too due to schools being shut, the partners can read out old children’s books to them or have themed dinner parties at home.
It is important to stay home, stay safe and safeguard what’s most important to you: Your loved ones.
